It's a Moviefone ad (showing in a number of different theater chains),
and yes, the deviled eggs are a joke.

remember its relation to the popcorn now sold (which you did), and buy

No one ever ate deviled eggs in the theater in the 60s, we popped up about 5
gallons of popcorn, hid 6 people and 6 six packs in the trunk, and paid only
one admission to the drive in theater.
